Fairfield is embarking on an exciting year-long journey to update its Comprehensive Plan!
This will be a collaborative process involving all members of the community, including residents, business owners, City officials and other key stakeholders who want to see Fairfield move in the right direction. A vigorous selection process was conducted in the spring to select a consultant – Jacobs – to help guide the update process.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan provides a framework to help guide the future development and redevelopment of the community. It addresses issues of land use, transportation, economic development, housing, and other issues that affect the quality of life.
The existing Fairfield Comprehensive Plan, adopted almost 10 years ago, is due to be updated to reflect current trends and priorities while focusing on the future. It is critical that the Plan be built on the values, needs and aspirations of the community.
How Can You Get involved?
Fairfield Forward is an exciting opportunity for the community to come together to shape the future of the City of Fairfield. The City is seeking input to help establish a vision. We encourage you to help shape this community vision by attending public meetings and completing on-line surveys.
If you wish to be involved and have your voice heard, visit the Fairfield Forward website (www.fairfieldforward.com) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for updates. Outcomes from meetings and surveys, as well as draft materials, will be posted on-line as they become available throughout the process.
The first public meeting will be an open house that will be held Wednesday, September 5, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Fairfield Lane Library (1485 Corydale Drive).
We look forward – Fairfield Forward – to hearing your ideas for Fairfield’s future.
